Rian Johnson is known for directing a range of films, most recently Knives Out, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. However, many Star Wars fans are familiar with him as the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We love it when Johnson brings to social media with new content in the background, and now brings us a great treat! Johnson cleans and encounters photos, with one featuring Carrie Fisher and another featuring Kelly Marie Tran.
“Cleaning the closet, I found my last notebooks writing Jedi. Such a journey through them. Bonus: some polaroids are stuck in the pages,” Johnson wrote. You can check out the photos in the post below. (We believe the person in the photo with Tran is a producer of Ram Bergman.)
Before releasing The Last Jedi, Lucasfilm announced that Johnson will be developing a trilogy of new movies that have been disconnected from the Skywalker Saga, but no official update has appeared about that project in the years since. Recently, Taika Waititi was announced by Lucasfilm to produce a film for the series, leaving listeners wondering if Johnson’s films are still happening.
In the summer, Johnson defends the Star Wars prequels. “[George] Luke made a very good 7-hour long film for children about how the right and fear of loss would make good people fascists, “he tweeted,” and did so while leading almost every technical sea change in modern filmmaking over the past 30 years. “
While his future in Star Wars is unclear, Johnson has plans to make a sequel to Knives Out.
“I really write about others Knives Out, “Johnson recently shared.” It became a mindf * ck, because I sat on the idea for the first time in 10 years. And with this one, I start with a blank page. Not really a Knives Out sequel I need to have a title for it so I can no longer call it The Knives Out Sequel because Daniel Craig is just the same detective with a completely new cast. “
Star Wars: The Last Jedi and more Star Wars movies are available to stream on Disney +.
